The writers of Holy Blood, Holy Grail are suing Dan Brown for plagiarism:

They say Mr Brown copied ideas in their book The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail.

“I have been shocked at their reaction. Furthermore I do not really understand it,” Mr Brown said in a statement.

Both books explore a theory that Jesus did not die on the cross but survived and had children with Mary Magdalene, and that their descendents survive.

I think this case only has merit because the original book is fiction to begin with.

    I was trying to explain this to my (non-Orthodox and not having read DVC) hubby yesterday.

    It’s bizarre. And, DVC is badly written to boot…

    Agree with Mimi. I’ve heard people wondering if they should read it because it might damage their faith…I think they might try developing some critical thinking skills and that might calm their worries about their faith. (Spoken like a true cranky college professor.)
